Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About
Honestly, there are many books I love and still am a bit hazy on the details. I usually forget how stories end, other than major twists, and forget tiny details. Please do not interpret this list as “books that aren’t great because they didn’t stay with me” because I absolutely love each book on the list!
1. Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. So much has happened and I forgot so much that I can’t even really continue reading the series until it’s done and I can do one giant reread.
2. IT by Stephen King. I know the gist, but I can’t remember pivotal scenes or the order things happened in and it makes watching the movie weird because I don’t actually know if it’s following the book or not.
3. A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle. As often as I read this book as a kid, I remember almost nothing other than that I truly loved and connected with it. And something about dimensions.
4. This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab. I really need to reread it.
5. The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole. I had this awful waking nightmare about it one night after drinking way too much wine and honestly, I don’t remember anything other than my dream about The Lovers. It has made me hesitant to pick up the rest of the series, too, even though I remember before the weird nightmare that I loved it.
6. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I just remember the twist and literally nothing else except that it was summer.
7. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. I LOVED this contemporary and now I don’t even remember the names of the characters.
8. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I remember the gist and remember loving it, but I don’t remember the full story arc with details enough to even understand the movie trailer and pick out differences. It’s definitely time for a reread!
9. His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers. One of my favorite historical YA fantasies and I can’t remember much except who the love interest was in book three and how awesome I thought that was. I really need to reread this!
10. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Still a huge favorite, but I can’t remember much aside from Poppet and Widget and maybe a magician?
As I said, I am notorious for forgetting plots and endings and character names… even in books I love. It’s only by rereading many times that I can truly remember everything. Kudos to people who read something once and retain every detail! This Top Ten is also Top Ten Books I Need to Reread apparently!
